Abstract

Chiral and achiral p-tert-butyl-calix[4]arene bisphosphites (L1–L3) have been synthesized by the reaction of p-tert-butyl-calix[4]arene and the phosphorodichloridites, ROPCl2 [R = (1S,2R,5R)-(+)-iso-menthyl (L1), (1R,2S,5R)-(−)-menthyl (L2) or C6H4But-4 (L3)]. These bisphosphites function as chelating ligands in palladium(II) and platinum(II) complexes which are formed in good yields by the reaction of PdCl2(PhCN)2, MCl2(COD) (M = Pd or Pt) or PdMeCl(COD) with the respective calix[4]arene bisphosphite. Single crystal X-ray diffraction studies performed on the complexes [PdCl2(L1)], [PdCl2(L2)], [PdCl2(L3)] and [PtCl2(L3)] reveal a near square planar geometry around the metal with the two chloride ligands in a cis disposition. The crystal packing in the complexes [PdCl2(L1)] and [PdCl2(L2)], which crystallize in the chiral (P6122) space group, shows different hydrophobic channels with intermolecular C–Hcdots, three dots, centeredCl hydrogen bonding. The complexes [PdCl2(L3)] and [PtCl2(L3)] are isostructural and the molecules in the crystal lattice are linked by intermolecular C–Hcdots, three dots, centeredCl and C–Hcdots, three dots, centeredO hydrogen bonds.
